Use Union Projectionists For Cleveland Film Festival

The men and women who operate the projectors at Playhouse Square are members of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE) Local 160. They are masters of their profession, and their technical expertise is a point of great personal pride. Although these projectionists expected they would be employed for CIFF (as they are for every PlayhouseSquare event), they were notified that the film festival would be supplying their own, non-union workers to operate the equipment. Sign the petition to join us in calling for the use of union projectionists.

Support the Postal Service Reform Act

The AFL-CIO and America’s leading postal unions are launching a joint mobilization campaign to ensure the U.S. Senate passes the Postal Service Reform Act (H.R. 3076). This crucial legislation will support the front-line workers at the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) who process, handle and deliver our mail. 

We’ve created three easy ways for our members to take action:

Tell the Senate to Sideline the Filibuster

American democracy is under threat today. To save it, we need real democracy in the U.S. Senate. That means passing the John R. Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act of 2021 and the Freedom to Vote Act. Sign your name and then call Senator Portman and tell him to sideline the filibuster, not the hopes, aspirations and representation of America’s people.
